Early this month, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood talked overtly about being abused by Brian Warner, higher identified by his stage identify Marilyn Manson. Since then, a number of different ladies have come ahead to inform their tales. That contains Esmé Bianco, who Game of Thrones followers will bear in mind as Ros, a personality from the primary three seasons.

Bianco particulars a fairly horrifying story to The Cut, beginning together with her assembly Manson in 2005 via his soon-to-be-wife Dita Von Teese. He stated he wished to forged her in a horror film he was making, and as an enormous fan of his music, she was excited. “I thought, My teen idol wants to work with me. Don’t eff this one up.”

Things took a flip in 2009 when Manson invited her to star within the music video for his track “I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies,” which was shot on a flip digicam for a house video really feel, that means there didn’t have to be a giant crew round. The shoot — for a video that apparently by no means got here out — was alarming and violent, with none of the secure phrases or discussions of consent widespread amongst BDSM practitioners — however Bianco excused it on the time by telling herself she was making artwork.

A pair years later, after Manson’s marriage to Von Teese ended, Manson requested Bianco to maneuver in with him. She had filmed the primary season of Game of Thrones right now, had been having a long-distance relationship with Manson and determined to go for it. After a short “honeymoon” interval, issues obtained darkish quick. Manson dictated what she would put on, when she might come and go from the condo, and when she might sleep.

Bianco remembers a time Manson repeatedly minimize her torso with a knife. That was the breaking level, together with an incident the place he chased her across the condo with an ax. She moved out round two month after transferring in, leaving whereas Manson was sleeping.

For years afterward, Bianco had evening terrors and panic assaults that made it laborious to eat or sleep, not to mention to hustle in Hollywood as an actress. It took lots of remedy, the Me Too motion, and seeing Wood testify earlier than Congress in 2018 about her personal experiences with Manson, the place she labeled what he did as “domestic abuse,” for Bianco to come back to phrases with what had occurred. Since then, she and Wood have teamed as much as assist cross The Phoenix Act, which extends California’s statute of limitations on reporting domestic-violence offenses from three years to 5.

For Bianco, Manson went from being a “massive role model who really helped me through some incredibly dark and difficult times as a teenager” to a “monster who almost destroyed me and almost destroyed so many women.” She calls Manson a “serial predator” who has been up entrance with the world about how a lot he likes to harm ladies. “He’s not a misunderstood artist.
